Sort of "wandered off".. :)
Heard you 'acquired' a library, though just a bit hazy on the actual details (just saw the pics of your Shelving Week.. Woo fun!) What do you intend to do with all the materials you have? Will the materials be eventually be scanned and put on here?

The Prelinger Archives Library is indeed sort of open, though we're still in a kind of "stealth" mode while we shelve and organize. It consists of around 40,000 books, bound periodical volumes, documents, and printed ephemera. Yes, we hope to scan all of our PD material and put it online at the Internet Archive, as soon as this becomes possible.

We thank Skip, Germaine, and the 57 other friends, comrades and like-minded people who worked hard during our shelving party week in June.
